Butterflies & Spring Adventures at the Zoo: San Diego Family Vacation

Submitted by on Friday, April 8, 2011No Comment

Butterfly Gardens at San Diego Zoo for your spring break family vacation

Looking for spring break family vacation ideas? A San Diego family vacation is just what the doctor ordered for those winter blues. Take your family on a spring adventure to San Diego for your spring break family vacation and enjoy all it has to offer, but don’t miss the butterflies!

Spring is by far one of my favorite seasons with the warmer weather, flowers bursting all their gorgeous colors, and birds singing, everything is coming alive and everyone seems to have an extra ‘spring’ in their step (oh yeah, pun intended).  But if you’re looking for some family fun you’ll definitely want to check out the Butterfly Jungle at Safari Park in the San Diego Zoo.

BSmith from familyadventure guidebooks.com, wrote a cool post on their experience in the San Diego Zoo at the Butterfly gardens, visiting the butterflies, eating meal worms, crickets and much more!  See her post, you’ll love the pictures!

Here’s what the San Diego Zoo has to say about their butterfly gardens,

There’s a flutter of transformations taking place at the Safari Park during Butterfly Jungle. This year’s colorful celebration, themed “Metamorphosis,” explores the astounding changes these winged wonders experience during their life cycle.

Thousands of butterflies will flit and float around you in our tropical greenhouse exhibit, Hidden Jungle, and a flurry of activities, and special experiences await you throughout Nairobi Village.

Meet keepers, fly by the Discovery Station for children’s activities about bugs, take part in special, themed Roar & Snore Sleepovers and tours, and much more. Come out of your cocoon and join the fun!

Sounds like an amazing spring break adventure for your San Diego family vacation. Don’t miss it!

And while you’re visiting San Diego for your spring break family vacation, you’ll also want to check out the HIGHLY recommended Birch Aquarium at Scripps Institute of Oceanography, UC San Diego. Be sure to add it to your list of must-see attractions in the San Diego area. Make a day of it and go the beach at La Jolla Shores Beach after your visit.
